This device running on Windows CE not only has a strong internal battery but it also supports AA batteries for extended outdoor experiences where a wall socket is not an option. CompeGPS, which has been selling outdoor GPS navigation software for years, has established partnerships with a large number of local off-road map providers in Spain, Portugal, Finland, Germany, Africa and Australia. USA is also on its way with USGS topo maps and negotiation with some other map suppliers are expected to be announced in a few months from now.
With this product CompeGPS expects to bring a truly dual navigation product, not compromizing on battery life, touchscreen and robustness. However, the 15 people Spanish company will have to make its way to the consumers, not an easy task on a market where Garmin, Magellan and a few others have a dominating presence on shelves space.
